Finally... a good run!

Yesterday I had the best run I've had this month~ FINALLY! The weather has turned biting COLD and WINDY again, so the TM it was. I am not fully back into the Pfitz plan, did 8 on Wednesday, so wanted to do 10 Friday, and hope to run 15 or so on Monday.

My legs felt fresh... sort of like the end of a taper for the first time in a couple of weeks. The ITBand also stopped hurting... it had been a noticeable twinge 24/7 for the past week or so. So-- first 4.2M did at 9:35 pace, then did the last 5.8 at 8:54 pace-- most of the last 3M were at or faster than MP. It just felt good to go fast again!

Followed that up with 10 minutes on the stair climber, so a good overall workout! We had dinner with our neighbors, which was fun.

Today both boys had hockey games-- Tommy's team won, and Danny's lost, but both boys played great... really fun!
